Our Landscaping Design Process

No two landscaping projects are alike, but most follow our tried-and-true process for design and installation. Depending on the size of the project, material availability, and time of the year, most of our projects take 4-8 weeks from an initial meeting to completion.

  1. Initial Meeting
    During our initial meeting, which we will hold at your home, our goal is to get a better idea of your landscaping needs, dreams, and scope of the project. We’ll ask you for an examples or inspirations, whether it is a neighbor’s house or something you’ve seen in a magazine or on Pinterest. At this meeting we’ll also talk about your budget, material options, and even start sketching out a rough draft of the project.
  2. Design and Proposal
    The next step is for our landscape designer to create a design for your project. Our design process is interactive and open, so you’ll get photos and links to past projects or ideas we have showing up in your inbox. In the case of larger projects, we may need several additional meetings to finalize products and layouts. We can even paint lines on your existing landscaping so you and your family can get a better feel for the scope of the project. At the end of this stage, we’ll send you a proposal for the project.
  3. Installation
    Once the proposal is signed, we’ll order the materials and schedule the installation. Our team of professional hardscaping installers are certified by the Interlocking Concrete Paving Institute (ICPI), having received hours of classroom instruction and passed rigorous examination. This means your hardscaping projects will be installed using industry-leading practices and materials.
   Andy and his crew did an outstanding job from start to finish. Andy was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive to our ideas and requests during our initial meeting and the design process. His design was comprehensive and indicative of how carefully he listened to our goals with the landscaping.
